“Har Ki Doon offers breathtaking views and the climate is so refreshing. The water flowing through the streams is a lot better than our purified bottled water. I have realized that nature is where we actually belong to. Har Ki Doon is one of the best trekking destinations in India. Thank you so much Uttarakhand trip trek for this adventurous trek.

“It was my first Himalayan trek and I must say I left a piece of my heart there and yearning to go back. It's a easy to moderate level trek for 8 days. I went through Uttarakhand trip trek (UTT) and they took care of all the facilities like food, tents etc very well. The trail, villages, locals that you meet on the way were all so beautiful. I went in mid April and it was raining frequently. It even snowed for 2 days during the trek. thnks UTT

“This was my heard earned vacation time and I have to admit one of the best vacations. Thanks to all the travel blogs I finally got the motivation to travel alone and damn it was fun! You get to meet so many new people and trust me guys the freedom that you'll have in travelling solo is just inexplicable. I'm glad I picked Har ki Dun...such an amazing place. Great experience.
